<div class="paragraph">My husband is one of those people who likes his oatmeal the exact same way every time he eats it. <br><br>Bananas, honey, and milk. <br><br>I on the other hand, treat my oats like a piece of bread. The toppings that can go on are endless and I'm always amazed at the new combinations that have me doing happy dances in my kitchen. </div> <div><div class="wsite-image wsite-image-border-none " style="padding-top:10px;padding-bottom:10px;margin-left:0;margin-right:0;text-align:center"> <a> <img src="http://www.rachelmeyerfitness.com/uploads/1/7/3/9/1739499/classic-quick-easy-2_1_orig.png" alt="Picture" style="width:auto;max-width:100%"></a> <div style="display:block;font-size:90%"></div> </div></div> <div class="paragraph">This oatmeal recipe would be perfect to enjoy right after a workout.
